Sony details its new Concept for Android UI: near stock Lollipop with popular Sony apps
Earlier this week, we heard that Sony was looking to test a new Android UI for its smartphones, starting with trials available to Xperia Z3 owners in Sweden. Today, Sony revealed more about this, also showing us two screenshots of the new UI.

According to Sony, the "Concept for Android" UI is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop, and offers a "stripped back, vanilla Android look and feel" that's enhanced with some of the most popular Sony features and apps.

As you can see in the images below, Sony's new UI does indeed look close to stock Android Lollipop. Unfortunately, for now we can't know exactly how the interface feels in terms of performance.

Only 500 Xperia Z3 users in Sweden will be able to test Sony's new Android UI (by registering at the second source link below). However, Sony says that this first trial may lead to trials for other Xperia devices, in more countries.

Do you own an Xperia smartphone or tablet? If yes, what do you think about Sony's initiative to strip down its Android user interface?
